Skyrim 1.4 patch: PS3 certification starts
When we saw the full Skyrim 1.4 patch notes a few days ago it was obvious that a PC beta would follow within days, which is the same pattern that previous updates have taken. Today we’re hearing the Skyrim 1.4 update has hit Steam for download in the form of a beta.
If you haven’t seen the details for this upcoming patch then you can do so here, which includes a few exclusive features and bug fixes for PC and PS3. The process for console owners is a little more complicated and as such would take a few more days after a beta hits steam, and this is thanks to the certification any updates go through with Sony and Microsoft.
History shows us the Skyrim 1.4 patch is in certification for PS3 and Xbox 360 – now we know the PC beta is on steam you can count on the same update entering console certification. The last PC patch, v1.3, hit steam in beta form back on December 7 and then made its way to PS3 on December 15, which is around one week later after certification.
The next Skyrim patch for PS3 owners is one of the most important yet, and this is thanks to a promise for frame rate issues to be fixed once and for all. PS3 owners should keep an eye on early next week for the 1.4 patch to land on their console, and this should be around the same time for Xbox 360 machines.
